The Out Traveler just compiled a list of the top 10 gayborhoods in the U.S. The big’uns are all there: Seattle’s Capitol Hill (No. 9). West Hollywood (No. 7). Fort Lauderdale’s Wilton Manors (No. 6). But what’s above The Castro (No. 3)? Why, li’l ol’ Oak Lawn!
Yup, according to the publication, the eateries and clubs (face it: We have quite a few bars in the Crossroads!), the proximity to both downtown and right here in the Design District (where the Voice offices are now located) and the friendliness of the residents (yee-haw, Texans!) make it the favorite in the land. And they didn’t even mention the warm weather, the Halloween street party, the excellent gay media (ahem) the shopping and much more that serves to explain why we call Dallas home.
So can we please get away from this “Dallatude” thing?
